The Rings On My Hand



are my
spiritual brand
my identity
as people
understand .
undercurrents
of a cosmic force
ebb and flow
of life and death
where i stand
the plethora
of confusion
my mind
as wastelands

God Gave Woman A Raw Deal



from the
time she came
into the womb
her fate was
sealed ..destroyed
as a foetus unwanted
her destiny blood
congealed .. older
married harassed
burnt alive her life
a cartwheel.. a wheel
within a wheel -single
molested raped
brutalized murdered
an object of desire
her eternal ordeal
created out of fire
her pain only she
could feel..yet
as a mother
she has the
power to create
to heal..woman
a goddess a door mat
surreal...vulnerable
fragile yet made of
steel...beauty desire
her usp her sex appeal
slithery as a serpent
faster than a eel
in a veil.. hidden
as a mystery
her true self
she conceals
mans soul
embedded
beneath
her stiletto
high heels

Amma Woh Raste Pe Kyon So Raha Hai


bitiya
uski
gharwali
kisi dusre
mard ke
sath
bhag gayi
woh apni
badkismati
pe ro raha
hai..na ghar
ka ne ghat
ka woh ek
zinda lash
apni kabar
mai so
raha hai

Dreams Die Young


he tried
to cut
his wrist
puncture
his lungs
tried to
hang
vertically
inert
from a fan
but it was
'not his day
to die alive
he was flung
the silhouette
of his deleted
dreams the
covert silence
of his tongue
ashes to ashes
dung to dung

madarchod
zindagi
lag gaya
zang
aa maut
mar mujhe
main zindagi
se tang

Dam Madar Beda Par...

Kids At Bandra Slums Mercy of God When The Rains Come



running helter skelter
for safety from sharp
needles of pain
oh to be in mumbai
when it rains
clogged gutters
overflowing drains
in the slums
water water water
no more complaints
mother in law gets
the fits son in law
faints wife screaming
amma amma
someone has stolen
my golden chain
a crowd gathers
as it happens
everywhere in
india ..police comes
people chew their brains
this world is mad house
even kids are born insane

madness is humanity
till death do us apart
is what .. eternally
remains binding
body to spirit
the glory of
mumbai rains
